DVD/CD Sleeves Setup Guide

DVD/CD Sleeve Placement Options


You have two options when it comes to informing us of the placement of the sleeve:

  1. You can email your Account Manager directly and provide direction for the placement. (e.g centered on the front inside cover, bottom-right of the inside back cover, etc.).
  2. You can upload a reference image.

Reference Image File Setup

Follow the below instructions when setting up your artwork in your chosen design program.

Page Count = 1

Document Size = quoted trim size

What Do We Need?

Essentially, we just need an image at the print size showing the intended placement of the sleeve on the printed page. For example: If you would like the sleeve glued to the inside front cover, we would need an image showing a 5.25” x 6” shape on top the of the printed artwork – the square shape would indicate the sleeve. Because the thickness of the sleeve is so minimal, the spine width does not need to be adjusted for this addition.
